Is there anyone who has not been abused, beaten, bullied, derided, violated, degraded, humiliated, hurt, rejected, marginalised, excluded, dismissed, devalued, undermined, tormented, cheated, conned, taken advantage of, coerced, made to do things they didn’t want to do, or felt powerless, or hopeless, worthless, alienated, or despised? Why is this?
2 Tim 3:3-5 of the Authorised King James Bible says: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
It’s pretty strange how it worked out this way:
Q: What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?
A: Psalm 117.
Q: What is the longest chapter in the Bible?
A: Psalm 119.
Q: What chapter is in the center of the Bible?
A: Psalm 118.
There are 594 chapters before Psalm 118.
There are 594 chapters after Psalm 118.
Add these numbers up and you get 1188.
Q: What is the center verse in the Bible?
A: Psalm 118:8
Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect will for our lives?
The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!
“IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN.” (Psalm 118:8)
Now isn’t that odd how this worked out… or was God in the center of it?
